  1. add optionnal comment when tagging someone for status change

    Skype: Add optional comment field when tagging someone for status change... Then show comment with notification of status change.

    When we tag a lot of people, sometimes we forget what was the reasons for tagging them. This added comment would be nice to remind us.

  7. don't charge another connection fee every new minute...

    Do not charge a connection fee for every minute a call is connected. That is a gratuitous and sneaky way to make more money that does not seem to be very obvious. In some cases, this triples the cost of a call!
    A connection fee is to connect a call. Once it is connected, there should be no reason to continue charging this extra rate.

  9. hide contacts phone number

    The user should be able to hide contact's skype name and phone number.
    It's a privacy feature. Say I want to allow my friend or partner to use my skype for calling my contacts but don't want to allow him copy my contacts Skype ID and Phone number, then I check on "Keep my contacts' profile private" which disables checking the profile details of my contacts without entering password.

  13. Recording availability

    The recorded skype videos can be kept as offline copy indefinitely without a 30day restrictions. As the user is recording for keeping it for long. And this feature should be like a check box once enabled every recording should have an offline copy. In skype server the 30 day policy can continue for consistency

  14. The possibility to chose your own Skype name

    The possibility to change the Skype name / assigned Live ID! Namely, I want to deliver link with outstanding name ( not with “live:779....” )
    There are accounts with creative IDs based on their e-mails... Why Can’t I turn my numbers of ID into a logical nickname ( link) ??

  16. I don't want to change the worldwide subscription i currently have, nor the other subscriptions i have allocated to other persons in skype m

    I don't want to change the worldwide subscription i currently have, nor the other subscriptions i have allocated to other persons in skype manager. Because they're exactly what i need. So i'm asking would it be possible to assign the offer of office 365 to one of the subscriptions i already have?

  19. Add an option to change Skype Name

    There should be an option to change the Skype Name for at least one time. The Skype generated Skype Names are sometimes ugly, and there is no workaround to either hide or change the Skype Name.

  20. Bulk deletion feature for contact list

    I've seen other people posting about this. But I find extraordinary that this feature does not exist.
    If importing contacts in bulk is an option, why deletion is not?

    Who has the time of the day to delete hundreds of contacts, one by one?

    This is not Microsoft standard. I am not sure if they will discontinue this app since it has become worse along the years instead of improving the user experience.
